Watching Movies On Your PSP or iPod

Dec 8, 2007
Apple has launched many ipod versions and when one hears the name ipod, the first thing which strikes in mind is listening to music. Ipod is known for the quality of music it provides for listening being only a small handy music player.

But, Apple wanted to change people's views. Ipod is not only listening but also viewing and to do that, they launched their first ipod video in 2006. It came as a surprise for everyone and all wanted to experience the new changes the ipod has got.

Every device in the market has a competitor and ipod too has got one, the play station portable. Play station portable launched by the Sony Computer Entertainment came into the market in 2004.

People loved what the company had to offer and the PSP device was also one of its kinds. PSP is basically a handheld game console which allows users to play all the famous games in that small portable device. It also allows watching clips. Thus, due to some common services, ipod and PSP are into competition.

Comparing the batteries in both devices, the life of the battery in PSP is much longer than that of an ipod video. While playing a movie, the battery of the ipod dies off in two hours, while in PSP it lasts for 7 hours.

That is a huge difference and PSP takes the lead here. Comparing the audio quality, both devices provide great audio quality, but still, ipod being a special music player provides clearer sound than the play station portable. Ipod has all the audio in the video files encoded in AAC audio format and thus gives better results. PSP has more bass effect in some cases.

Though the difference in the audio quality in both is not that significant; ipod turns out to be a better one. Both these devices allow video files to be played, thus, the video quality is something to be discussed about. PSP has a larger screen compared to the ipod, but loses out in the quality of display.

The iPod projects a sharper and higher quality video output, and also sharper text. In encoding a video, ipod takes about 12 hours to encode a video, whereas a PSP only consumes 3 hours to do so. Thus, PSP encodes a video in almost one fourth of the time taken by an ipod video to do.

Both the devices are good and have many good services to be provided to the users. All devices have some or the other problems where they lack to provide the quality and same is with these two devices. Both have some positive and negative points.

The audio and video quality on an ipod is better but the battery life of PSP is much longer than that of an ipod and it has a bigger screen. The iPod is a smaller device than a PSP and thus, it is obvious for it to have restricted services than a PSP.

The iPod player being a smaller device is easier to carry and to use at various occasions. Both these devices are used for entertainment and are similar in many ways in terms of their practical usage. Thus, people have to choose between the two according to their preferences, needs and interests on the basis of quality expectations.
